A Spoon Full of Sugar #151 & Creative Craft & Papertake Weekly



PLEASE SCROLL DOWN IF YOU WANT TO JOIN IN THE DRAW FOR MY CELEBRATION CANDY



Hi girls. Thank you so much for dropping in on my blog today. I am so glad to be back posting a card after my enforced break. I have so missed being able to blog and I am looking forward to visiting all my regular blogs to leave comments. I am still not back to normal but am a lot better than I was.
I am entering this card into challenges. A Spoon Full of Sugar gave us a fabulous sketch to follow, Creative Craft Challenges wanted Distressing/Vintage and Papertake Weekly had the theme "Fancy a Punch".
I have used Sugar Nellies digital image called "Verity Standing" and coloured her in using my Copics. The papers are from the bottom of my stash drawers and I am afraid I don't know the names of them. I used pale pink card as a mount. I used Tea Bag distressing ink to try to give the whole thing a vintage look. The small flowers were mde using a small retro punch and the ribbon is an irredescent tan and blue from my stash.
I hope you like this offering enough to leave a comment. I love reading what you have to say and your tips and suggestions are much appreciated.
Have a great crafting day and above all stay safe and healthy.
